A restaurant is located on the property and offers great food and service. Bit expensive. The staff at the hotel is friendly and helpful. We shopped for supplies and basic groceries near the airport grocery stores and saved a lot. I brought my snorkeling equipment, but you can also rent it nearby.

Our family has been coming here for over fifty years, like many others. Comfortable and functional units to suit your needs. Beautiful snorkeling and swimming in Napili Bay at doorstep. Currently there is heavy surf, most unusual, but great to watch. Swimmers need to respect the current and rip tides when surf like this. Red flags and warnings everywhere, but... More

LOVED this property! It's tucked out of the way up on Napili Bay-away from the busier places. We stayed in one of the recently remodeled rooms and it was just beautifully done-floor to ceiling glass doors opening onto a Lanai with a glass railing so our view of the lovely turquoise water was completely unobstructed. The grounds are perfectly maintained-lots... More

Forget the high rise and ridiculous resort fees! Just minutes north of Kaanapali is Napili Kai beach resort. More real Hawaii on Maui, spread out with multiple pools and hot tubs.a beautiful beach and many private spots to relax this place is perfect. We get a studio with a kitchenette and eat on the lanai or barbecue on the property... More

We selected this Inn after eating in their restaurant while staying at a nearby hotel. Once we toured the property and rooms we were sold on staying there. The Inn surpassed our expectations as the room was all new and had very, very nice furnishings, appliances, bathroom, etc. The staff is outstanding, helpful and friendly. It is quiet yet fun...

True Hawaiian. 2 weeks of Paradise. Great resort, staff, and the Sea House restaurant is wonderful. As close to the water as you can get. Absolutely the best place on Maui to see the Humpback whales. We saw 20 -30 breaches a day for 2 weeks. Moms and babies breaching, tons of tail flaps, peck flaps and the males breaching... More

This is our fourth time staying at Napili Kai and it was amazing as always. Our room was steps from the ocean and the views with Lana'i and Moloka'i as the backdrop are breathtaking. The service is phenomenal with everyone being so friendly and helpful. Their tag line is 'welcome home' as you check in. They sure do a great... More

We have stayed at many luxury resorts and vacation rentals on Maui and Oahu over the years. But after our 9 day stay at Napili Kai, we think we have found the best resort yet, and here is why: Best Beach: Beautiful Napili Bay, a crescent shaped beach with clear water, calm to the north end, and more waves at...

We stayed here over the summer holiday. This is an older hotel/condo resort that sits at the north end of beautiful Napili Bay. The location is great with a beautiful beach, perfect for watching the sunset and the whales. A quiet and tranquil place. Lots of families. Our studio room was big, with a kitchenette and a sitting area and... More

This had to be one of the most beautiful settings on Maui. This a rather smallish resort with units fronting the beach and the ocean. Each building has its own pool, spa, laundry facility and outdoor grills. Each unit has a large lanai with chairs and a dining table. Our unit was a studio with an adequately stocked kitchen.
